Laura Davies Wins the Ladies Senior LPGA Tournament at French Lick $200,000 raised for Riley Children’s Foundation!

French Lick (NNDC) – There’s no doubt who the best senior woman golfer was in this first historic first year. England’s Dame Laura Davies won both the U.S. Senior Women’s Open and the Senior LPGA Championship convincingly.

Davies was as dominant in the Senior LPGA as she was in the Open, played in July at Chicago Golf Club. Davies won that one by a whopping 10 strokes. She was a wire to wire winner in the Senior LPGA, which concluded on Wednesday on the Pete Dye Course here.

It was a beautiful day and the crowd really enjoyed the play of these ladies on the Pete Dye Course.
